Vila Castelo proved to be a beautiful place. Alice and Sergio are just great...they take pride in the place, and it shows. Everything is clean and all the staff are very accommodating (especially Lea at the pool bar). Our apartment was very comfortable...2 bedrooms and a nice terrace. Close proximity to the pool area. Ferragudo is a beautiful little town... More
